Years ago, Ellen worked for a large media company as an Associate Creative Director in its magazine and Direct Marketing divisions. Nat specialized in marketing, media, and also finance. Combining talents, they’re doing what they love more than anything.

Photography has always been important to them. In High School, Nat built a darkroom in his mother’s home. By the end of high school, he was photographing the yearbook, shooting for local merchants and clients. Professional photography, like marketing, has always been a major part of his life. Ellen’s father, who was an avid photographer himself, gave her a Brownie when she was eight. He taught her how to remove the film and get it into the processing tank (standing between clothes in a dark closet) and then how to make prints. The rolls of film and tanks for both of them have long gone; experience and gear have improved with time. Their work is highly sought by clients.
Nat and Ellen feel blessed to live in New York City, where the opportunities to meet and shoot interesting and amazing people are endless. When they’re not busy with clients, you might see them shooting in Prospect Park, Coney Island, the High Line, DUMBO, or some other fabulous photo locations the city and east coast offer.
